“Anyone feeling disheartened by the state of the world, anyone wondering how we’re going to yank our collective bootstraps and solve this century’s most pervasive problems, should visit Austin College in northern Texas for a hefty dose of hope. There’s plenty of optimism here, and rightly so. The curriculum pairs in-depth study of liberal arts and sciences … with a focus on international study that’s hard to find anywhere else. The result is a group of 1,350 students who are thinking carefully about what they can do right now and for the rest of their lives to make the world a better place. And they’re thrilled.”
